Project description

Pelican Series: A Plugin for Pelican

This plugin extends the original series plugin by FELD Boris Copyright (c) Leonardo Giordani This plugin is also in the Pelican Plugins repository

The series plugin allows you to join different posts into a series.

In order to mark posts as part of a series, use the :series: metadata:


or, in Markdown syntax


The plugin collects all articles belonging to the same series and provides series-related variables that you can use in your template.


By default articles in a series are ordered by date and then automatically numbered.

If you want to force a given order just specify the :series_index: metadata or in Markdown series_index:, starting from 1. All articles with this enforced index are put at the beginning of the series and ordered according to the index itself. All the remaining articles come after them, ordered by date.

The plugin provides the following variables to your templates

* `` is the name of the series as specified in the article metadata
* `article.series.index` is the index of the current article inside the series
* `article.series.all` is an ordered list of all articles in the series (including the current one)
* `article.series.all_previous` is an ordered list of the articles published before the current one
* `article.series.all_next` is an ordered list of the articles published after the current one
* `article.series.previous` is the previous article in the series (a shortcut to `article.series.all_previous[-1]`)
* `` is the next article in the series (a shortcut to `article.series.all_next[0]`)
* `article.series.first` is the first article in the series
* `article.series.last` is the last article in the series

For example:

{% if article.series %}
    <p>This post is part {{ article.series.index }} of the "{{ }}" series:</p>
    <ol class="parts">
        {% for part_article in article.series.all %}
            <li {% if part_article == article %}class="active"{% endif %}>
                <a href='{{ SITEURL }}/{{ part_article.url }}'>{{ part_article.title }}</a>
        {% endfor %}
{% endif %}

Joins articles in a series and provides variables to manage the series in the template.
